DANBURY – A technology consultant will present ways to use an iPad to engage people with dementia at the July meeting of the Danbury Area Computer Society, according to a posting.
Ed Fitzgerald, a digital marketing and technology consultant to small businesses, will speak about an approach he developed using an iPad with his wife, who was diagnosed with a form of dementia, the posting said.
The idea was to find a way “to engage her in activities so they could enjoy their time together, stimulate her mind, elicit a response from her, get her to smile, laugh, bring her out of her shell and create moments of joy,” the posting said.
The DACS meeting is planned for 7:30 p.m. July 11 at the Danbury Hospital Creasy Auditorium, 24 Hospital Ave., Danbury.
